What excites you most about this region right now?
Marlborough’s climate and different subregions allow us to produce expressive, fruit-forward styled wines across several varieties. We are lucky to have world-class pinot noir and chardonnay vineyards that are located at the base of the Wither Hills. Whether it’s our famous sauvignon blanc or another variety, our objective remains the same – to produce the beauty of Marlborough in a glass.
What should we make time for at your winery?
Wither Hills is one of Marlborough’s most popular cellar doors and restaurant venues. We offer lunch, tours and tastings, and you can even have a chance to blend your own pinot noir. It is a great place to soak up the sunshine and take in a view that is quintessentially Marlborough on a beanbag in the grass courtyard with a glass of sauvingon blanc.
